In Response To: Nat Love Biography and History Quest ()
Just wanted to add that the "Deadwood Dick" title is one that has not been authenticated to one person. I mentioned art imitating life as the singing cowboys of Hollywood were adapted from actual trade practices of the cowboys. Well some authors believe that the "Deadwood Dick" title was an example of life imitating art as they assert that the name was borrowed from dime novels and assigned to certain western figures. Dick Bullock is probably the most challenging claimant to Nat Love's title as "Deadwood Dick"
